Solved Downsizing current build on a budget Tags: Build New Build Systems Product Last response: June 10, 2011 7:13 PM in Systems Share granno21 March 14, 2011 4:41:55 PM Hello, I am moving in July and need to downsize my current build. I don't think that I have enough saved to complete a new build. My current build is: Case- Coolermaster 690; CPU - Intel Q6600 Quad; MB - MSI nero p43 ATX; mem- 4 (1gb) patriot 800; HD- 4 500gb wd; GC - Nvidia 9600GT; PS - OCZ 500watt I love the size of mini ITX, but a brand new build would be around $400 extra to get the same performance I have now. Any ideas on how to downsize on a update? More about : downsizing current build budget WR2 March 26, 2011 7:19:12 PM Hello granno21; Still working on this project?

MSI P43-C51 P43 mATX Motherboard $85 And a case smaller than that 20.65" x 8.39" x 18.98" sized RC-690. mATX cases that HEC 6T10BB Case is $30 with free shipping till 3/30. 15.25" x 6.90" x 14.00" To get any smaller - you'll spend more for a case like: SILVERSTONE SUGO SG02-BF $75 15.47" x 10.63" x 8.35" granno21 June 10, 2011 7:13:57 PM Best answer selected by granno21.
